President Isaac Herzog hosts US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is visiting Israel with a congressional delegation.

“We are really overjoyed that you are here in Israel and we are grateful to you for your friendship, which represents so much in the unique relationship between Israel and the United States, an unbreakable bond, and we are very glad that you are here with your husband in Israel, in Jerusalem, in the Holy Land,” Herzog tells Pelosi. “Welcome and have a wonderful visit.”

Pelosi thanks the president for his hospitality, and the two discuss poetry by Ehud Manor. “It really is true, and we’ve discussed this, that the arts bring us together,” she says. “Somehow there is a way, where the inspiration and shared values enable us to forget some of our differences. To the beautiful friendship between our countries.”
